hour. >> thank you. we have a few more transportation questions here. next one is for mr. davis, miss olague and mr. resignato. the agency has proposed to meter street parking on sunday afternoons. do you support the replacement of conventional parking meters with variable rate meters in district 5 and would you support metered parking on sundays? >> i'm not a huge proponent, but i do support the mandate parking. i think it's a viable source of revenue for mta. there are other some of which have been talked about and some are already being worked on including congestion pricing and a downtown transit tax assessment district because downtown businesses are the greatest benficiencies and should be paying their fair share in terms of busing their employees on a daily basis. i think muni has had a shortfall ever since the state gas tax money, since we lost that money and we have to look at how we're going to solve muni's long-term budget problem and get a muni system that is efficient and runs on time and not cutting fares while expanding fees. we can do that with a vehicle license fee
is for miss breed. mr. davis, and mr. resignato. and for the benefit of the audience, i will also project the questions on the screen. please explain your position on whether or under what conditions the san francisco parks and recreation department should be parented to lease park facilitis to food vendors and other commercial enterprises? miss breed? >> hi. london breed. i think that what we see now in the recreation -- i'm sorry, what is the time limit on each of these questions? >> one minute, please. >> i think what we see now is a bit of an abuse in terms of the number of vendors that the city has leased space to in our parks. and parks and recreation is for parks and recreation and not necessarily should be a place where we are leasing space to more vendors than we particularly need in specific areas. there is a place for vendors, for food vendors for various vendors in certain areas of the parks, but i think we are focusing way too much time on trying to figure out how we generate revenue for the city more so than we are trying to figure out how to make sure that those uses a
a couple other candidates who wanted to jump in here. mr. davis and miss selby. >> after $1.5 billion in public service sector cuts in san francisco since 2008, since our budget crisis, we can't balance our budget going forward on cuts alone. we have got to look for revenue with muni failing and unmaintained parks we need a comprehensive, aggressive revenue strategy. i was one of the activists and advocates who helped to get the gross receipts measure to the ballot and box g to actually start collecting gross receipts data. i would look at the real estate transfer tax and we were able to add significant revenue that way. he think i'm the only candidate here who has been talking extensively about a commercial tax rent. commercial property owners in the state of california have been on a tax holiday since prop 13 and under the reagan and bush eras. and we could use that revenue to fund our public schools and restore jtor city college. >> thank you, miss selby. >> two of the things that are being done this november and i would love for to you vote for both of them, 30 and 38. those are
. mr. davis. >> supervisors, good afternoon, my name is robert davis and i'm here to support the legislation. unfortunately the larger problem here, again, like with the last issue is enforcement. and the dbi's unwillingness or inability or whatever to enforce the blight laws, there are over 5800 open notices of violation in san francisco, dating back to 1994. '94 was significant because that is the year that the records wept went from paper to computer. >> how many different blightedÑ properties again? >> i can't speak to blighted properties. because the dbi can speak to that. a notice of violation is someone complained and dbi went out and wrote a notice. on the second complaint process. you can see there are 14 steps before the city attorney takes action and there are first notices, second notices, the list is extensive. after the notice of violations, the department of building inspection comes up with the director's hearing and send the notice of violation to the director. there is a director's hearing that takes place. since 2000, there are 2000 open director's h
limited police resources. thank you. >> mr. davis >> let's be frank there are control interests in agenda at city hall and a cronyisticism that includes [hr-ufrpl/]ry condominium for the ultra rich, corporate tax breaks, chain stores and parking garages, a vision for san francisco that doesn't include a lot of everyday people. it's getting to where students and seniors on fixed incomes and young families and teachers and firefighters and everyday folks can no longer afford to live in san francisco. we have a crisis of affordability here. i think the city's economic development polices have a lot to do with why we're starting job/housing imbalance when you are so focused on the power elite, the twitter tax breaks and not focused, which i think we need to start to do. on the economic development interests of our small businesses. which are the life blood of the san francisco economy 80% of our economy is small business along our commercial corridors and most jobs are created by small businesses each year. the city needs to reorient its economic polices towards small businesses an
as supervisor. thank you, mr. davis. i want to remind folks and point out that we have seen a disturbing trend in san francisco over the past couple ever years. of years. we have had a lot of leadership appointed for us. an appointed mayor, appointed district attorney when our leaders are chosen for us instead of by us. if you want leadership in our city, i'll i'm your candidate. at juliandavis.org, there is more detail about the grassroots campaign we're building. i encourage you to look where the candidates are getting their money from. i think it says a lot about whose interests they will be representing. thank you. >> anybody else? miss olague? >> again, i just wanted to welcome all of you to the office, room 256 of city hall and we are engaging with neighbors all the time. recently i voted in favor of community choice aggregation. i am a sponsor of the affordable housing proposition c. we worked extensively with community counsel for housing organizations to make sure that we had the right balance. i worked on the gross receipts measure that is on the ballot currently. so there are a

to recognize now the gentleman from illinois, mr. davis. mr. davis: thank you, mr. speaker. and i want to thank my friend from illinois, mr. lipinski, for yielding to me. when i think of jerry costello, i think of the fact that those of us in illinois sort of had two go-to members of the transportation committee for many years. bill lipinski, who is the congressman's father, and jerry costello. we used to call them the gold dust twins. and one of the reasons is because they had such a great relationship and worked cooperatively to make sure that our state, the state of illinois, the home of abraham lincoln, was well taken care of in terms of infrastructure. but they also worked for the entire country. i had an opportunity to travel with jerry and his wonderful wife a number of times and, of course, she is a delightful lady who's a higher education administrator, the president of a community college. and other members of their family are engaged in public service as well as what they do privately. i've never known a more congenial member of this body, any other legislative body that i've served
and gentlemen. >> all right. well, that was then. now mr. davis has made a right turn towards the gop. just last week at the republican national convention in tampa, florida, he gave a barn burning headline speech in support of republican presidential candidate mitt romney. please take a listen. >> some of you may know the last time i spoke at a convention, it turned out i was in the wrong place. my fellow republicans, thank you for welcoming me where i belong! >> all right. joining us to discuss cnbc contributor howard dean, former vermont governor and himself a former presidential candidate, and also with us archer davis, former democratic congressman from alabama. now a staunch supporter, out on the campaign trail with team romney and ryan. all right, archer, you gave a hell of a speech. i heard it all. what's your biggest beef with the democrats. what's your biggest beef with your former democratic party. >> i'm glad i don't have to be in charlotte defending the kbhik policies that failed. i'm glad i don't need to say the democrats have new ideas to turn the jobs numbers around when they don

'm pleased to yield two minutes to the gentlelady from california, mrs. davis. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized for two minutes. mrs. davis: thank you. thank you, mr. speaker. i rise today to express my strong support for h.r. 1410 and also for h.r. 484. these resolutions really embody a great concern of many of my constituents at home as well as americans across this country. as americans, we often take for granted the rights and privileges that are guaranteed to each and every individual in this country. so we can speak out at town hall, we can protest in front of the capitol steps and when all else fails, we can register our vote at the polls to make our voices heard. those rights and privileges that we enjoy are being denied every single day. to the people of vietnam. so today we vote on these two bills that send a clear message that these abuses will not be tolerated. we must make it clear that progress needs to be made on these issues before we can move forward on other issues that are important to both of our countries, including those issues of trade. our e
don't have anything else. >> gentlemen, the gentleman from illinois mr. davis, is recognized. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. and thank you, mr. paul, for your testimony. governmentwide there have been challenges to development of unclassified and classified systems, information sharing. in particular, in dhs, has had problems in the past of developing and deploying these information sharing systems. let me ask you, how will the recent round of cuts to the budget impact development of some of the systems, and how can we make sure that they are developed and get to state and local and tribal governments that need them? >> it's difficult to comment on the cut specific to dhs but i do want to highlight that, dhs with her classified network, has conductivity out to the fusion centers, and they've been making some stellar progress with the homeland security network. we've also been to a lot of work to drive interoperability across dhs system, fbi leo, law enforcement online, the intel link system and intelligence community and also the grant funded state owned risked net so that's a c
to the shaman from illinois, mr. davis. >> thank you, mr. chairman. and thank you, mr. inspector general. i want to thank you for your very informative than clarifying information. i think which you have delineated gives the average citizen a great deal of confidence that what they are hearing is what is actually happening. i know that lanie brewer, head of the criminal division and the department of justice has been severely criticized by some members of congress for what they consider to be his actions here. senator grassley has called for this resignation. the chairman of this committee has said mr. brewer, and i quote, clearly culpability. and mr. schaefer has even said that mr. brewer started this up in 2009. so i want to ask you a few questions to see if we can't really clarify and understand what mr. brewer's role in these two programs were. one, mr. horowitz, did you find the assistant attorney general authorized or did god walking in ice operation "fast and furious"? >> we did not improve the wiretap applications in either operation? >> know, in each of the 14 instances, it was a deputy

tempore: without objection, the gentlelady from california is recognized. mrs. davis: thank you. last week the san diego chamber of congress sent its largest ever delegation of community and business leaders to washington. they came because they know washington can help them spur the economy, innovate, and employ local workers if we can all get on the same page. what grand request did they have for this congress to help make progress happen? well, just that we do our jobs. that we roll up our sleeves. work together across party lines and find a sensible, not an arbitrary balance of cuts and spending. yes, mr. speaker. this country is facing some hard choices and yes there is division in this chamber, but we do not need, we do not need to add to the serious challenges facing american business and families by sitting on the sidelines watching a completely man-made disaster explode upon our economy. let's work together to come to decisions now. the american economy should not be facing a fiscal cliff. it should be receiving a fiscal road map. by actually doing our job we can make the job of o

americans. mrs. davis: they are ambassador chris stevens and sean smith. the two victims from san diego, one is tyrone woods and the other, glen daugherty. in talking about mr. d mbings aughe -- -- daugherty, at the training and the dedication, you have to. that is what drives these guys. and also the country would be in much better shape. we need to have people keep doing what we're doing because he really believed in freedom and he really believed in the united states. as we know, these are two highly decorated seals who left the community of seals and serving with the consulate there and the state department in libya. we certainly celebrate their life and we mourn their death. i want to recognize their family and let them know that our thoughts and our prayers are with them. thank you, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from maryland rise? >> to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized, without objection. mr. cummings: our right to vote is one of the many guaranteed by our constitution. every election --

, be very inefficient as we did that. >> thank you. ms. davis. >> thank you, mr. chairman. thank you all for your leadership and for joining us today. at the beginning of your statement, secretary hale, you emphasized, i believe, that we need a balanced budget deficit reduction plan. is there anything in this discussion that we've had today that would suggest that perhaps it doesn't need to be balanced or that there is, um, is something about that in terms of all the budgets, you know, all the areas that we're looking at, yacht just yes dense -- not just defense that's not part of that discussion? >> the administration favors a balanced program of deficit reduction. i realize there are differences of opinion, but that would suggest both cuts in spending and some increases in revenues. that has to be worked out between the two houses of congress and the administration, but i believe they continue to favor that. >> any of you feel that that doesn't necessarily reflect your services? >> i'm going to intervene and ask -- >> okay. >> -- our military leaders not be asked to comment on that par

percent, says this about your book, "provocative and intellectually challenging, davis has made a major contribution to the literature on television and its role in our society." why is mr. poltrack of cbs commenting on your book? don't you make him mad when you write this stuff? >> guest: about 13 minutes ago when we were talking about networks, i think i said -- i'm just kidding, of course -- but i think i said that there is some evidence of adjustment. the networks are adjusting to this loss of audience and trying to find ways to more narrowly pinpoint and go after the kind of audience they're losing. poltrack's research has, along with many other factors, led cbs to attempt to reach a certain specific kind of viewer. "murphy brown" was one of the spinouts from that change. though obviously i'm sure he doesn't particularly like everything that i have to say about networks, i think that cbs is clearly recognizing the shift that i'm talking about, so perhaps they can hear it better or see it better than the other networks can, though obviously there are all sorts of exceptions in each

of the criticisms of mr. obama's leadership is that he's had so much difficulty winning support from congress. many republicans say that's because he was too beholden to his democratic base. tom davis is a former g.o.p. congressman from virginia. >> when he got elected i think he had every intention of trying to bring everybody together behind him, let's work together, but he had a democratic congress. the minute you go over and sit down with the republicans you'll have pelosi and the democrats fighting saying "we won the election." so the pressure is for him to produce a work product and the republicans weren't going to follow over and say "oh, yeah, let's work together." it's tough situation. when your party controls both houses, those interest groups control the agenda. they don't want to give it away to the other side. >> reporter: but the number two democrat, dick durbin, said the president often took on leaders of his own party. he recounted a late night white house meeting on health care reform in january, 2010. democrats were arguing with the president to remove some oversight provisions. >
